Forum: feature_films Subject: Please Remove Copyright Movie From Feature Films

This film has been uploaded twice and it is not PD.

The Fat Man (1951) has a timely renewal and was renewed on December 19th 1977. It was registered on April 18th 1951 but the registration points out the (in-notice 1950). So using April 18th 1950 as the starting point and using the 1950 law you can see that it is not PD:

1950 (this is the transitional year for the effects of the 1976 act to come in):
Correct Notice
Timely registration (within 3 months of publication)
OR Late Term Registration (at any time during the 28 year term)
Timely renewal (within the 27th-28th anniversary year window* or the
28th calandar year window*)
copyright could be forfeited if published without correct notice or
not timely renewed

It was renewed by Universal here is the Renewal Number: R680861
